In a floor speech on Wednesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ripped Republicans for filibustering judicial nominees, because they are so beholden to special interests:
"Powerful interests don't give up. They shift their fight to the courts because they know that if they ccan weaken or overturn a law in court they turn defeat into victory. And if they can rig the courts by putting enough sympathetic judges in lifetime positions a friendly judicial system will give them a chance to undermine any law they don't like."
And, they are also still so extremely bitter that Obama got reelected that they are doing anything in their power to deny him of exercising what the people wanted when they voted Obama in:
"We need to call out these filibusters for what they are: naked attempts to nullify the results of the last presidential election. To force us to govern as though President Obama hadn’t won the 2012 election. Well, President Obama did win the 2012 election by five million votes, and he has done what the Constitution requires him to do."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
